The Dallas Cowboys need help at wide receiver.

Jerry Jones even admitted the team needs a true No. 1 option after his team’s 19-16 overtime loss to the Houston Texans on Sunday night.

The team’s offense has struggled. Some fans and media members blame quarterback Dak Prescott.

Many more have taken aim at head coach Jason Garrett.

But after Sunday’s loss, many agree that the lack of talent and production at the wide receiver position seems to be the team’s most significant area of need.

And despite what fans might think, the organization is not likely to re-sign Dez Bryant.

So, if the team looked to address the position in the 2019 NFL Draft next spring, which players might be available?

If the draft were held tomorrow the 2-3 Cowboys would be drafting anywhere from No. 7 to No. 14 overall. Here are the college pass catchers who might be the best fit.

1. A.J. Brown, 6-foot-1, 230 pounds, Ole Miss

He’s a little short in terms of the ideal all-around receiver. But his speed and production against the SEC’s best defenses is impossible to ignore.

2. N’Keal Harry, 6-foot-4, 213 pounds, Arizona State

He and Brown are only wideouts likely to go in the first round. And Harry should be available in the middle of the first round.

3. Collin Johnson, 6-foot-5, 220 pounds, Texas

His physical tools and production finally match. And he could be available to the Cowboys in the second round.

4. David Sills V, 6-foot-4, 210 pounds, West Virginia

The former quarterback has become arguably the best threats in college football and also could be avaible in the second or third round.. And he unlike the receivers on the Cowboys, he has an uncanny ability to find the end zone.

5. Lil’ Jordan Humphrey, 6-foot-4, 220 pounds, Texas

The former Southlake Carroll star would provide a big body to throw to in the end zone. He’d also likely be available in the fourth or fifth round.

Texas WR Lil'Jordan Humphrey made the play of the game, coach Tom Herman said after the Longhorns' victory over Oklahoma. Humphrey gained yards after contact multiple times against the Sooners.
